OVERVIEW

This class is designed to teach you the very basics of white water kayaking, to prepare you for future river trips. We’ll spend ~2.5 hours on Thursday, 10/21, on the lake at Walnut Creek Park (~10 miles south of town) learning such skills as the wet exit, how to paddle a white water kayak, T-rescues, and the Eskimo roll. Since I will need at least 1 driver for this, I will put everyone on the waitlist and move the first driver to sign up, and then the first 4 or 5 who signed up, onto the trip list. After drivers I am giving priority to white water kayak first timers but please sign up regardless of your experience level.

The plan is to meet at Echols at 1:00pm (please be prompt!), get out to the park by 1:30, and be off the water by 4:00. The water and air temps may be chilly so please bring plenty of non-cotton layers. The club provides wetsuits and some dry tops (limited quantity) to go over your layers.

The Club provides: Boats, spray skirts, pfds, paddles, helmets, and nose plugs, wetsuits, splash jackets, dry tops.

You should bring: swimwear, plenty of warm non-cotton layers, towel, change of clothes, water, snacks, and sunscreen.
